The current apoplexy over 3D printed guns reminded me of this youtube video by Royal Nonesuch.

At the time, each Sten gun cost as little as £2 ($10) to produce – roughly equal to about $130...today...

Danish, French and Norwegian partisans built hundreds of domestic duplicates, while the Polish engineered several improvised versions right under the Nazis’ noses.
